Draft based on Peruvian overlay fabric

January 24, 2011

An article  by Harry Linder in a Weaver’s Journal magazine describes a sample from the Shuttle Craft Monograph #26, Peru: Textiles Unlimited by Harriet Tidball.  An interpretation of the fabric is woven using 6 shafts to avoid long floats on the reverse of the fabric.

Fabric drawdown as described in the article, using a contrasting ground weft to show better on the screen.

I re-arranged the tie-up and treadling for a slightly different effect.

    Isn’t that weave structure fun? Years ago I wove some narrow fabric in cottons that became potholders which I’m still using. You can play with the pattern threads a little but there are some definite limits to your design options. Might be exciting to experiment with yarn choices though.
